The last car show you can actually attend in 2020

Be positive. Sorry, I meant optimistic

If you don't mind, I'm just gonna skip the whole "pandemic bla bla bla" preface simply because we all know what's going on. Long story short, there's a car show that you can actually attend this year and it's gonna be held in Milan, from October 29-November 1. It's called MILANO MONZA OPEN AIR MOTOR SHOW, or MIMO to his mates.

In 2015, an Italian car collector and entrepreneur called Andrea Levy came up with an idea for an open air motor show set at Parco Valentino in Turin. He put together a team of clever people, talked to local institutions, talked to car manufacturers and made it happen. Five editions later, the location changed - from Turin to Milan - and so did the name. I missed the first edition of the show but managed to attend in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 (check pictures below) and I loved it.

Over fifty manufacturers will attend the new show in the heart of Milan: AUDI, Bentley, BMW, Bugatti, Citroën, Cupra, Dacia, Dallara, Dr, DS, Ferrari, Ford, KIA, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, MINI, Opel, Pagani, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Seat, Škoda, Suzuki, Volkswagen, Alpine, Aspark, Aston Martin, ATS, Automobili Amos, Automobili Pininfarina, Aznom, BMW Motorrad, Cadillac, EVO, GFG, Honda, Jaguar, Jannarelly, Kawasaki, Mole Urbana, Pininfarina, Pirelli, Radical, SpiceX, Tazzari, Tesla, Totem, Yamaha, Zero Motorcycles.

There are six major locations: Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, Via Mercanti, Via Dante, Via Montenapelone e the Castello Sforzesco, where all the electric cars and brands will be located.

Each car comes with its own QR code that you can use as a personal assistant to learn more about the car and it also serves as a guide to facilititate physical distancing.

Italy is more or less open if you come from EU / EEA countries. Having said that, I know that some countries, including the UK, recently added Italy to their quarantine list so make sure to check before you travel.

    • I read an interesting article back in February. I don't remember the source or the author but I do remember the line "2020 is a write-off". It felt overly pessimistic back then but it somehow feels like the author was actually being...

    • Yep, when this became a world shutdown, I knew immediately the rest of the year is a write off. People expect miracles to occur overnight. They have no idea how many people and institutions are working around the clock. Even then, it will be a...
